A light but super-tasty pasta dish, with fresh asparagus cooked in broth with sauteed garlic and seasoned chicken.

This is an example of a review that I think does NOT review the recipe. ------ ".. Chopped the asp. into 1 in. pieces and boiled it in my pasta water for a few while it came to a boil. Then I drained it into a bowl so I was able to reserve the hot water; then added the pasta back to it. Grilled my chicken breast seasoned w/ poultry seasoning, s&p. on my little indoor grill for a few,(I like the chix to have a little golden color) then cut it up & added it to evoo that had been sauteeing garlic and onion. Added the chix, asp., sqz of lemon juice, chopped a few roasted red peppers (out of a jar, "RAO'S" brand.. yum) 1/2 of a chopped tomato, 1/4 cup of chix broth, about 1/4 cup of cream cheese and a spash of milk & parm chz. That really helped make it creamier, although there still wasnt too much sauce, but thats fine w/ me. Makes it feel "lighter"! Thats about it, I snuck in a few red pepper flakes & tossed it all w/ the pasta! Perfect! " I your own recipe, why don't you?

Well, she gave HER OWN recipe five stars, I think.

I don't mind when people tweak a little or have to substitute an ingredient they don't have. I learn from those reviews. But this one is unfortunately too far from the original to be able to use any of it. I do agree with the Rao's sauce though. That stuff is GOOOOOD!!

I agree AZ93. And you know, it really doesn't matter. Those ideas in the quoted review are not bad. It's just interesting. I enjoy the reviews and kind of wish the system were different...but don't know what would be better!

Maybe it's adult ADD...but I don't usually read reviews that long and that detailed, for the reason you stated. It may be interesting and helpful, but it's not a review of the recipe!!
